Changing the past

I have recently updated an earlier posting in relation to feature configuration differences between CC&B 2.2 and CC&B 2.3.1. There are a couple of new settings to be aware of, as well as a number of 2.2 settings which are no longer supported. Check out the updates at https://blogs.oracle.com/stusbraindump/entry/feature_configuration

Better than a Tardis..

Changing the System Date in CC&B (to cater for testing requirements where the system has to be artificially rolled backwards/forwards) used to be done via the Database initialisation parameters, and the Batch Run Date parameter. But it appears that FEATURE CONFIGURATION now supports this requirement.

Simply create a "General System Configuration" Feature Configuration instance (we tend to call ours CMTIMETRAVEL, but there is no restriction on this in the system), and define Option "System Override Date" with the required value.

Once again, be aware that it is not recommended that you roll your dates back and forward, since this makes investigation of defects a bit more complicated, but it definitely has its place in relation to test execution (especially Collection and Severance testing, where the process runs across a large number of days and test cycles are typically defined for a much smaller period).
